I love my school and think it’s great. Sometimes classes can be irregularly hard compared to what other universities are doing.

Student Review: 2 /5
By On 3rd December 20

The school is fueled by greed and deceit. Students hurt other students a lot here. Many students just simply lack empathy. This is also taught and encouraged by the school. It’s sad. Dealing with students in fraternities and sororities is very difficult. They are very abusive both verbally, physically and racially. BU is a rigged system dealt in favor of these fraternities and sororities. Every week, they do something embarrassing that hurts BUs reputation. They get away with it. It’s clear that the school wants to uphold institutional racism and marginalize certain groups with these criminal enterprises. Another issue is that you have to be wealthy to do well here. If you’re wealthy, people just throw themselves at you. It’s pathetic. The wealthy students are kinda like the Jeffery Epstein’s in the world. I’ve heard stories of wealthy students paying other students to take exams, do homework and write essays. Also, some of these students get away with a lot of crime.

S*** school. Unfriendly students. Advisors are horrible. Lots of stupid rules that management doesn’t adhere to. Frequently power outages. Frequent attacks on campus, crimes, and muggings.

Administration truly does not care about the well being of their students. At times it feels like “recourses” are nothing beyond a facade created to please the brochures.

Campus is fine--close to a lot places in Boston. Clubs and other extracurricular activities are highly decentralized and often poorly run (overconfidence by students, unwillingness to listen to others, and lack of oversight). Student union / student government is decent. Careers Service has been helpful, but often suffering from the problem of decentralization and lack of connection. The internet is often slow, but manageable.

Faculty don't spend enough time and attention on students. I think this is because they are mostly focused on getting stipeds for research. To be fair, BU has plenty of resources available which turned my whole experience around. I wonder if faculty in other departments have more time for students. But it's a real problem in my department (Science).
